IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: ribosomal-protein-alanine N-acetyltransferase

Reaction: acetyl-CoA + ribosomal-protein L-alanine = CoA + ribosomal-protein N-acetyl-L-alanine

Other name(s): ribosomal protein S18 acetyltransferase

Systematic name: acetyl-CoA:ribosomal-protein-L-alanine N-acetyltransferase

Comments: A group of enzymes in Escherichia coli that acetylate the N-terminal alanine residues of specific ribosomal proteins. cf. EC, peptide α-N-acetyltransferase.
